Michelle Hotaling (pronounced ho-TAL-ing) grew up in the commonly mispronounced town of Coxsackie, located outside of Woodstock, New York. A retro girl, from a retro town, her sound stems from classic rock of the 1970's and has been inspired by artists of the Woodstock Era. Her sound blends 70's sounds with modern productions. Her music is in the category of A schizophonic, ethereal, purple-loving, lyrically-based, 70's-influenced, wannabe hippy dancing around in scarves and sequins to a wurlitzer, drum loop, and wa-guitar.
Or something thrown into a big genre known as pop-rock. Chained by Dreams is due out November 2006.
